    Electromagnetic Waves: Properties

    1. The velocity of these waves depends upon the medium in which the waves flow.

    2. Time period and wavelength are parts which depend upon the source from where the waves come.

    3. Electromagnetic waves are depicted via sinusoidal graphs.

    Electromagnetic Waves: Types

    Following are certain types of electromagnetic waves:

    a) Microwaves

    b) Radio Waves

    c) UV rays

    d) Infrared Radiation

    e) X rays

    f) Gamma rays
